The cultivation levels she was aware of so far are as follows:
Chakra wheel revolutions
Dao Shrine Birth is known as the Shrine stage
Four elements Nirvanic Rebirth is known as the Nirvana stage
Karmic Compass calibration stage known as Dao seeking
Dao Tribulations Also known as an Emperyan knight
**Sunny** No, it seems the main goal in cultivation is attaining longevity and one of the bigger questions of whether the peak brings ultimate power and Immortality as well as why is having a Dao so important. This environment and world can be very dangerous, these cultivators can change the weather, crumble mountains and kill countless people if they wished to.
These three are essential to being at the peak of any level in your cultivation base, lacking any one of these will result in lower subpar quality in your energy, power, mind and body.
She loved her baby so much, she decided to not give her protection, she hoped this trial would help her wake up, even if it meant her death. Her future would only have been limited if she was protected, even if she wasn’t aware of the protection it would still be a splash in the oceans of karma and ultimately a blemish in her Dao if she truly decides to head down this path.
She steeled her self and made her choice and said “I know your name, you asked that boy to call you Kimarya instead of the name I gave my child, and you aren’t my child. I won’t kill you, even though I’m feeling such maddening fury. I don’t know what kind of ties I will have with you, but later on, I will.”
It would show a silhouette of your Ancestral Guardian Spirit and stars for your amount of latent talent.
One star means little or no latent talent for cultivation.
Two stars means below average latent talent for cultivation
Three is decent latent talent for cultivation
Four is average latent talent for cultivation
Five is great latent talent for cultivation
Six is genius level latent talent for cultivation
Seven is demon level latent talent which only appears once every ten thousand years
Kimarya looked around but the number of kids around her was still twenty she muttered, “Don’t tell me these are the survivors…?”
Kimarya saw in Draenoy’s memories that it was a great honor to show your Ancestral Guardian Spirit and latent talent, especially when getting a master/disciple relationship with a high-level Elder.
Kimarya decided to go after him so she wouldn’t bring up that much attention, she walked forward and noticed that everyone had a strange reaction to her, but she just ignored it and walked forward till she was in front of the stone.

“Who are you and why did you try to share that hyena problem with me?”
Kimarya huffed still upset before Leerum continued in a distressed voice “I never would have imagined you had such awful luck to be targeted by a Murder Crow! Not even if I had ten more guts would I dare run to you, even if I knew that you had a Demonic Ape as an Ancestral Spirit Guardian.”
Kimarya heard an indignant snort in her head “How dare he confuse me, this great and magnanimous lord as a pitiful Demonic Ape” grumbled Sasquatch after hearing what Leerum said.
She asked him “What’s a Demonic Ape?”
**Sunny** Yes I do, the Spirit Beast system is essentially like this:
(First stage)Animal Grade (1,2) —-> (Second stage)Beast Grade (1,2,3,4,5)
The Hyena being a Grade 2 Beast and this Hairy Intruder is a Demonic Ape a Grade 5 Beast.
Sunny coldly interrupted with more information.
(Third stage)Creature Grade (1,2,3,4,5) ——-> (Fourth stage)Broken Existence Grade (1,2,3,4,5)
Kimarya ignored the still upset and grumbling Sasquatch and paused Sunny’s prompts as she looked back at Leerum before hesitatingly answering “My name is Draeneoy Stormblood, but please call me Kimarya.”
Leerum was about to continue before he chocked on his next breath and in an unsettled tone quickly asked “That family…So you’re a chosen….wait…You’re that Draeneoy?!? The supreme warrior body and holy daughter of the Stormblood family?!? You can’t be her, she was without a brain, perfect warrior, no soul-”
Leerum again realized he was very rude and also said too much and fell to his knees kowtowing “I’m sorry! I wasn’t thinking, I didn’t want to say that, please administer the desired amount of punishment for my transgression!”
Kimarya awkwardly smiled before following Sunny’s instructions to make it back to the village with Leerum in tow, a journey made easier thanks to the increasing light from the rising sun.
After waiting a few days, she heard knocking on her only to be surprised by an awkward Leerum at her door with an odd bag in his hands.
“I wanted to give you these for saving me as well as compensation for taking the Murder Crow’s core… I’m sure you know how important it is for stabilizing and completing the Ancestral guardian forms,” he said as he handed her the pouch.
He continued saying “This is a spatial pouch, the only one in my family, inside of it is everything usable of the Murder Crow except the core…desperately needed it to finish my Ancestral Spirit guardian form. But without a Murder Crow as an ancestral spirit guardian the core wouldn’t help you, even if you found another one its benefits would be less.. but please know that its flesh is considered a cultivation treasure, it is a creature that has absorbed and amassed an incredible amount of natural energies so it will greatly help in your cultivation. Its feathers could be used as weapons or even a formidable cloak with great defensive strength.”
Kimarya was shocked and held onto the spatial pouch before replying “I’ll give you the pouch back when I’m done with all of it, I can’t accept it, it’s too special to give it away!”
Leerum shook his head before saying “Thank you for your assistance, Hol-Kimarya!” Then he immediately sprinted away.
Kimarya with an amused smile closed the door, after a few days alone she and Sunny digested and comprehended more and more of Draeneoy’s knowledge and had a more complete understanding of this world and cultivation that is so important to everyone.
The cultivation levels she was aware of so far are as follows:

Kimarya suddenly heard a popping noise snapping her to attention, she was back in her body, furthermore she saw a massive claw opening up in a grabbing motion only a few feet from her right shoulder. It was from a distance that would be impossible to dodge, a space that could be traversed in only a second.
But she was strangely calm. When suddenly some gaseous substance started swirling around her incredibly fast, much faster than the claws of the Crow, this substance that formed into a massive humanoid figure with Kimarya hovering in its middle.
It’s long and burly arms masterfully grabbing onto the Murder Crow’s claw before its other arm pulling back, its just formed muscles under its skin tensing up like steel cables full of power before bringing a ferocious fist strike at the Murder Crow.
It raised up its one good wing and madly waved it in front of it, till dozens of its fearsome feathers were unleashed, making its previous attacks seem like child’s play. The air was right away filled with an awful rain of whistling noises as the dozens of feathers flew like long and darkly glinting projectiles at Kimarya.
Who in her giant humanoid form picked up the kid behind her and narrowly dodged most of the feather projectiles. Most of them. Kimarya noticed that one penetrated through the area right in front of her face just nearly taking her eye out!
As the dreadful cacophony sounded out, a dreadful flame started to coalesce in front of its opened maw, it pointed it right at her. She started feeling a strong sense of crisis from this flame, as she felt this the hand that was gripping the air pulled back as if ready to throw a large rock. The crow continued to glare, apparently still furious and not falling for the trick that was being played on it.
The giant humanoid body in its full 13 feet tall got into a stance as if to throw something, before suddenly making the pitching pose.
Kimarya couldn’t help feeling embarrassed, darkly muttering to her self “What the hell is Sasquatch doing at a time like” She didn’t finish talking as surprise pushed all thoughts out of her head as the giant humanoid pitched the air, the whole body felt as if a large weight was displaced.
“Wait, did it actually throw something, I didn’t see a rock?”
The air started screaming as a blurry shape was flying at the crow whose eyes opened wide and used its good wing to smack at the object….that amazingly fully appeared at impact as a very large greyish rock!
The Murder Crow’s body shuddered in clear pain at the heavy impact and noise sounded out from the rock hitting its strong muscles on its wings as well as making it step back to regain its balance.
“I have an idea, let’s do the rock thing again, but multiple times, how do I do it?”
**Sunny** You have to stop its attack before it fires it, else its very unlikely we would be able to dodge or defend from it.
“Knew that wasn’t going to work, let’s try this instead!” yelled Kimarya.
The Murder Crow heard the air screaming and knew it was the real deal this time and swung its wing forward, hitting nothing but air! It grew panicked and tried to block its front again, even with its broken wing but was a step too late as the rock smashed against the amalgamation in front of its beak!
Maybe it was the urgency in her voice or something but the elemental earth energies rushed towards her hand and in her palm was a rock half the size of her head, the energy coalesced into the rock as it blinked between visible and not before growing dark like a shadow.
All of this happened in barely a moment after her last attack landed, and not even 5 seconds passed before she rose, pulled her arm back, gave an embarrassed smile as she pulled into a pitcher’s pose in honor of Sasquatch and threw this attack with all of her might.
Kimarya’s attack without losing any momentum after puncturing through the Crow’s attack homed in on the crow who unfurled both its broken and healthy wing and used them to block in front of its head and chest before the attack went straight through both wings and even its chest continuing right through its heart!
“Who are you and why did you try to share that hyena problem with me?”
So on Saturday I was at a two day conference and as we all left to get pizza I felt something quickly climbing up my leg inside my pants.
I rightfully bugged the fuck out and was inches away from furiously taking my pants off in front of everyone (I even had my zebra print boxers on, don’t judge me), but luckily reason and intense need of stopping it from reaching my crotch prevailed in that fight of instincts.
I tightened my pants so it couldn’t go forward anymore and with my other hand in panic tried to crush whatever creature it was, while my brain screamed snake in my fucking pants.
Well, it turned out it WAS a cute lizard, wished I didn’t kill it, but I also wish nothing ever scurries up my pants again.
Kimarya stopped suddenly, just then she heard whistling noises and saw the sharp two foot long black objects impale the ground where she would have been if she didn’t stop right then there. She immediately felt a cold sensation on the back of her neck all the way down to her spine before diving behind the nearest tree on her right and again hearing the whistling quickly followed by the sound of the tree on her back being stabbed into by the dark objects.
So she just lowered her head and ran even faster and at the very least not going in a straight line.
She got within 2 meters of the gorge before she noticed the ranged attacks were more and more infrequent till they stopped, but by that time she had over 10 cuts all over her body, some small, others not too small followed by the scent of blood.
She heard Sunny’s voice yelling something to her but it felt so distant and far away that she couldn’t understand. She could only look up as she saw the Murder Crow hovering, its massive wingspan as it took its time to land. Its piercingly blue eyes focusing and looking into hers. She felt such pressure outside of her as well as a pressure within from the fear, terror and a panic that waited for the first vicious peck to finally come bursting out in a dreadful scream of pure and absolute fear originating from both her and Sunny.
She saw some movement in her peripheral vision before a body suddenly tackled her hard into the ground. She fully expected to hear and feel the tearing of her flesh but saw it was a young boy, seemed to be 13 years old. He had long black hair with patches of brown in random places, no facial hair, earing on the top part of his left ear, he seemed to be in panic yet with alert and weary eyes as he glanced at Kimarya and looked back at a gigantic Hyena thundering out of the brush who immediately raised its head.
It was roughly 6 feet tall when it had its head raised and with a body more than 10 feet long. It advanced at a slow pace making very threatening low growling sounds, that astoundingly they could even feel that low-frequency sound reverberating through their body and organs followed by fierce grunting at its prey and the newfound presence next to it, the hyena had several nasty cuts on its front legs and sides but it still powerfully stalked closer to its prey.
It continued to do so before its low growl suddenly became shrill whining as it realized the Murder Crow hovering unfazed in the sky, its eyes widened before it immediately turned tail and almost disappearing back into the brush. It was almost gone before a massive body crashed on top of it, you could hear its muffled and yelping scream as its head was forcefully pushed into the ground by the massive force before the Murder Crow’s beak came slamming down like an evil meteor into its neck.
It blocked four of them before the remaining two pierced deeply in the not yet fully formed body with shining yellow eyes, amazingly it was just like the Hyena!
Apparently, it was after the Hyena’s death that he overcame the partial conquering of its essence and could materialize its form as his very own Ancestral Spirit Guardian.
He was trying to do another forceful Ancestral Guardian spirit!
A booming sound came from his body, and the crow’s eyes dimmed and….merely stopped for a second!
The boy’s face immediately showed his alarm, panic, and disappointment. Knowing that it should have stunned it for a minute, enough to attack it like he did to the Bestial Hyena. His original strategy was to use his second pill to take more of its essence and finish it off before he saw the escaping Kimarya and tried to drag his troubles to her and get her help.
Unfortunately, he didn’t see that she was being hunted, not only that but it was a freaking Murder Crow! Although it’s young, if he knew he would have ran the other way and taken his chances with the Hyena, at least then he’d have a chance of winning!
Everyone knows that its certain death if you encounter the Murder Crow, its intelligence and strength makes it into something you essentially can’t make into an Ancestral Guardian Spirit.
He muttered “What awful luck!” before the Crow was almost upon them.
Kimarya finally escaped completely out of the lull of its true attack that incapacitated its prey. She knew that the gorge that might be her only chance, an unlikely ticket to save herself was just a meter behind her, she could jump in as the Murder Crow took down that kid in front of her. Her fist clenched before she ran forward when suddenly she felt some incredible pressure in build in her head. Is the crow using making its call of death? It can’t be, its beak is closed! She released a dreadful scream that was followed by a brilliant light.
“Good Job kid, you actually got this far before this great one had to save you, huhuhuhu.
**Sunny** Detected foreign entity
Initiating all expulsive and offensive measures.
CRITICAL FAILURE, UNABLE TO EXPULSE.
Kimarya hears Sunny scream, it was the first time she heard her scream. She felt a terrible buzzing in her head and was petrified with terror at the understanding that whatever is in her head completely overwhelmed Sunny, her powerful Subconscious.
“Just kidding, everything is perfectly fine, Sunny is fine, just wanted to make a cool introduction. Isn’t that right Sunny?”
Kimarya could hear the indignation in Sunny’s voice, especially as she ignored and didn’t respond to it and only cleared the situation up.
“Can’t do that, Bub. The only reason you even reincarnated together is because of me, so let’s calm down.”
“First of all, I’m not Satan, I am known as Sasquatch or bigfoot. I did it because I could tell you were a big fan, you were dying and other reasons… but yeah I chose you, Pikachu, to make my escape, huhuhuhu.”
**Sunny** Kimarya wake up right now!!!
Kimarya woke up to her body slamming down onto a branch and heard a crash immediately followed by a loud cracking sound right above her.
She awoke dazed and in shock, she felt such a terrible presence with an intense killing intent that made her body shiver.
But her body kept moving on its own, Sunny had control and was escaping something that was in the air by diving down to lower branches. She felt highly disturbed by this feeling and easily got control again, but because of that she missed a branch and kept tumbling down.
She looked up and saw that branch that she missed getting impaled my six black two foot long objects and realized she almost got nailed to that tree as an easy meal for whatever is chasing her.
Kimarya shouted in her mind, “Sunny, what’s chasing me?!?!”
**Sunny** JUMP NOW!
Her body took control, it wasn’t her nor was it Sunny, but she crouched and sprang like a cannonball right between two thick branches into the empty abyss.
Immediately after she heard a thunderous cracking and sensed a large body crash with great momentum onto the branches that she dived through, something that was only just barely slower than her forceful dive downwards into empty air.
Adrenaline pumping through her whole body slowed time as she looked back as she fell down through the air. In her quick glance she saw a monstrous black bird with a vicious looking beak and glowing blue eyes, the sharpest shade of blue you could find in the crevices cut by melting water flow cutting through ancient glaciers, something of such grand beauty yet piercingly cold and emotionless.
This was a hunter, yet not a hunter, this was a strikingly intelligent and brutal creature that had no care if its meal wasn’t breathing or still labored to do so as it fed.
Kimarya had the sinking impression that it was often the latter.
Her panicked mind and memories of this body told her this was…. a Murder Crow!
It opened its maw and a terrifying cacophony of sounds that Kimarya has never heard was unleashed, that seemingly didn’t seem possible to come from a living creature. She had the impression that it sounded like the death throes of dozens of people, hundreds of creatures, even the thunderous cracking of a tree as it collapsed under its own weight could be heard within it. All of those cries were really in the background of its true call that, if the rest made your goosebumps and hair raise from the message of fatality within it, this was the straw that broke the camels back, that let you know ‘I am the reaper that caused all of these noises, and you’ll be the next one to join in my orchestra of death’.
She didn’t notice or she couldn’t notice the nearby tree quickly coming into reach, but her body did and grabbed on forcefully, her momentum strong enough to leave her palms without any more external skin.
Kimarya didn’t feel any of that.
All she could focus on was the call, as it finally made her mind buckle, the innocence of Draeneoy and the past life of Kimarya where her biggest danger was the smog of her city, nearly being hit by a car a few times or the many fights she had as a troubled teenager.
This was too much for her as a full-blown panic attack was building up where she’d let go of the branch and surely be the next cry in the crows note, or maybe panicked and maniacal laughter that she heard in between the majority controlled screams and cries.
Electricity ran through her nerves again, tightening her grip to the branch as she instantly pulled her self up and kicked off before the branch she was on was shredded by the fearsome talons of the Murder Crow.
She felt small stabbing pains on her back as the splinters reached her. Her full blown panic attack was swallowed up by the boiling adrenaline flooding through her veins as she masterfully glided between branches heading deeper into the tree where branches grew thicker and more densely packed together.
She crouched as she slid between four massive branches each as thick as her when she looked back again and saw the Murder Crow angrily Caw at her before fiercely grabbing the branch with its vicious beak pulling on it before violently crunching right through it.
It continued for every step it would violently grab, jerk its head and the loud crunching of the branch could be heard as it got closer to her.
Kimarya noticed the space between the thick branches getting smaller and smaller so she immediately decided to ditch before she eventually and foolishly got stuck in the branch for an easy meal.
She screamed in her mind “Sunny what do I do, where do I go?” Before jumping and diving to a tree nearby.
The Murder Crow’s eyes glinted with intelligence, its fake outrage didn’t trick its little snack into trapping itself like other less interesting meals. It silently jumped into the air once more to continue its chase.
Kimarya swung through branches, kicking off at random times most of the time for no reason and not hearing the resounding crash of the Murder Crow who struck less frequently.
For some reason, this didn’t make her feel any better as she tried to increase the randomness and directions as Sunny scanned through the paths she went through looking for an escape route.
**Sunny** Kimarya! Right over there, there’s a gorge between those trees that might be a path the water takes during a storm rush as it cut through the land!
Kimarya made sure not to make a direct beeline towards the gorge, she had the sinking feeling the Murder Crow wasn’t as simple as it appears.
She kicked off a branch, before feeling the intense pressure in her heart warning her of intense danger. It decided to attack as she was in mid-air! She heard snapping branches above her as she realized this and swung her arms and roughly caught onto a branch that stopped her mad dive forward, this tactic was not without its consequences, she felt like she nearly popped both arms out of her shoulders before a millisecond later a massive shape crashing through the area she would be at if she continued her dive.
Her heart beat extremely loud as if she just saw her death before she dropped down and madly rushed towards the Gorge.
“I’m going to make it!”
